Influences

‘This painting is very similar in composition and colouring to Spencer Gore’s ‘Still Life with Apples’.

However, Gore’s painting was executed three years later in 1912. This is one of Turner’s most robustly Post-Impressionist works and is highly experimental. A notation indicates that the watercolour took two hours to complete – it may well have been an exercise set up by Gore’.
